The Gay/Straight Alliance of the New York State Justice System packed more than 170 judges, lawyers and court employees into a courtroom of Brooklyn’s Supreme Court for the Feast of Kings holiday party last Thursday afternoon.

It was the first holiday party of its kind in the Brooklyn Supreme Court in 12 years and it was an absolute smorgasbord. All of the court personnel got to snack on the more than 40 trays of food, plus three-foot long heros and dessert.

“This was the first holiday party in the Supreme Court in over 12 years,” boasted Marc Levine, president of the Gay/Straight Alliance. “Over 170 employees and judges joined in. Not surprisingly, there was very little food left and all the pastries were gone. Instead, there was a flood of smiling, joyous faces and full bellies.”

Dessert included 24 dozen mini-pastries from Monteleone’s in Carroll Gardens, and the Italian food that was served came from the House of Pizza and Calzones, also in Carroll Gardens. There was mac and cheese from the Mac Shack in Clinton Hill and trays of wings from Buffalo Boss in Downtown Brooklyn.
